Smoke suppression for plastics

In contrast to most other plastics, the chlorine bound in PVC protects against ignition. Nevertheless, a fire causes considerable smoke emission. Modern additives from Budenheim suppress the development of such smoke in PVC, therefore helping to protect people and the environment.

Chlorine, a component of PVC polymers, acts like a halogen-based flame retardant agent in the event of fire. It suffocates flames by forming a smoke, which, due to the hydrochloric acid vapour it contains, is harmful to health and corrosive.
The addition of smoke suppressants from Budenheim greatly reduces this dangerous formation of smoke.
